Lovely Brooklyn Brownstone

4,8 sur juin 15, 2014

Visiting daughter who lives a 10 minute walk away from this lovely historic brownstone. 2 blocks from the subway. Very convenient to Manhattan on express train. Comfortable twin beds in large room on top floor - we got the last room so no double was available. Sink in room. Large full shared bathroom. Be prepared to get to know your housemates while waiting for a delicious, filling breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed the other guests in this relaxed setting. Or have cereal and fruit before if you have to get out early. But if you want to relax you won't regret it. Our hostess asked for our preferences our first morning and was very accommodating (turkey bacon instead of pork & lactaid milk). We felt safe in the neighborhood at all times. Though the block is somewhat dark at night it is only one block off of two very busy street/intersection. Jazz on Friday and Saturday with top artists until around midnight. Friday includes a fish fry. Unfortunately we couldn't attend on either night, but from what we could tell they were exceptional artists and a lively well-behaved audience. If you don't want to hear the muffled sounds of top notch jazz artists, then get a room in the back. So exciting to stay in an authentic historic building! We would definitely stay here again.


A Time of Connection

4,0 sur avril 19, 2014

I left with my heart and soul full. My husband and I stayed at this gem of a place. We were in town to see The Raisin In The Sun. It was my first time in NYC and I wanted my first experience to be authentic and away from the "tourist" feel of NYC. Debbie and Sankofa Aban did not disappoint and exceeded my expectation. From the brownstone itself to the corner pastry/coffee shop on the corner. For me it was such a connection to Debbie and Sankofa Aban. This connection, particularly to the brownstone and the history behind, was so real to me. We stayed in the Retreat Room and it was simply lovely. We meet a lovely Parisan couple who live in England and another young lady who hailed from Canada. It still resonates in my soul the richness and authenticity of our stay. I want to thank Debbie, Spencer (who waited for us on our 1st day) and just simply everyone for the genuine warmth and love sent our way. We will definitely be back.


Awesome Anniversary Trip to NYC

4,2 sur novembre 16, 2013

This place was wonderful. Being from New Orleans, this was the perfect place. It is just a block from the subway, plenty of parking, the food was wonderful (especially the fried fish on Saturday night), and the owner was amazing. The place was warm and inviting. There was a Jazz performance on Saturday night with drinks and a wonderful Crepe shop down the street. The bed was not the most comfortable, but everything else more than made up for it. We will definitely be visiting here the next time we make a trip to NYC.

Hi, I'm just taking a moment out to look over some past reviews. I'm very happy to have helped in your enjoying probably a much deserved, though out vacation. In doing so, there should never be a concern on whether the bed would be of comfort in a BnB. So, please if anyway at all I could be made aware of which room had a uncomfortable bed needing to be addressed, I'd like to take care of it. I have said before and will say again, our mattress sets are of some of the best on the market. High quality brands. Still there maybe something I'm unaware of I can do to assure a more restful night. We're not perfect, but I don't mine working at it. Thanks for choosing Sankofa Aban BnB.


Great Location and Hospitality with a Few Quirks

3,0 sur août 01, 2013

Lovely brownstone and owner was both warm and friendly. She was more than happy to provide us with needed information about restaurants and public transportation in the area. Room was very comfortable and spacious next to a shared bathroom that was always available to us. Breakfast was good but sparce with one entree the first day and out to a neighborhood restaurant for breakfast the second day which we enjoyed. Wash cloths were not available until requested and room was not serviced after the first night (bed was not made upon our return). We thoroughly enjoyed the jazz and fish fry in the evening as well as the warm hospitality during our stay.

Réponse du propriétaire
Thank you for your time in giving this review. I certainly appreciate being given the opportunity of clearing up misunderstanding of how we operate. I see that you felt that breakfast was not enough by your standards, but please understand that we are simply a Home-Style Inn we are not a Hotel with a restaurant, with different dishes to choose from. Since I'm the cook it is easier to cook one main dish everyone usually can enjoy together. There is always fruit, and cereal in the Dining Room. This is why I treat my guest to a special Breakfast Outings at the neighborhood Crepe Shop. Not just any neighborhood coffee shop, but actually a authentic French Crepe Shop. Specialty Coffee, Teas, and Pastries. We also have a policy here not to enter rooms, unless asked by the guests. We respect privacy, unless it is absolutely necessary to enter. Plus there is a small extra charge for Room Service not included in rates. Everyone does not need to have that service and should not be charged up front, for such. Also, wash clothes have been known to be a laundry waste being placed in rooms. The small clothes are usually not used by our guest. We give once they're requested. I am glad that you were able to find some enjoyment on your short stay, and hopefully one day you might chance a longer stay. Till then keep enjoying life in Bed and Breakfast.com, BnB's.


OUTSTANDING!!!

5 sur juillet 03, 2013

Where should I begin- Oh yeah... upon my arrival Debbie (the owner) came to my rescue!!! She took on the cab driver who attempted to overcharge me for the ride from the airport- She was "Not Having It" I knew right then and there- I was in the Right Place!!! Sankofa Aban is a magical ... upon entering i felt transported to another Place and Time- Such Character and History... The Havana Room- Simply Beautiful! Whatever you do- Please DO NOT miss Brownstone Jazz on Friday and Saturday Nights!!! Oh what a Glorious Experience- I attended both nights... It's just that GOOD (plus there is a Fish Fry ya'll) The Caliber of Performers was simply Outstanding- easily worth five times the price of admission. What a Gift!!! Sankofa is an Experience that i will NEVER FORGET- I felt Safe and Cared for at all times... Money well Spent!!! Oh- and a Shout Out to Nelson... Thank you for an Impeccably Clean room and your Sweet disposition.


Wonderful Time

4,8 sur avril 20, 2013

I stayed at Sankofa Aban during my first ever visit to New York. I was concerned a little bit since I was travelling alone and had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before. However, I had a very pleasant experience in New York and at Sankofa Aban and my concerns were all for nothing! My room was the "Country Blues" and everything was very sufficient for one person and the room itself was lovely. Jazz sessions on Friday and Saturday were brilliant and the fish fry was great! Debbie, who was my host, was a wonderful person, very very helpful and laid-back. People who stayed at the Inn were also very nice people and every morning we had long breakfast conversations and we shared our experiences in New York and told stories. The breakfasts were very tasty as well (the serving time was a bit late for one day but it wasn't a huge deal). Even though my initial plan was to go to the Inn just to sleep at night, the loveliness and welcoming warmth of the atmosphere of Sankofa Aban made me feel at home and not at a "cold" hotel. When I go back to New York, I will definitely stay at Sankofa Aban. It really add to my trip and overall experience in New York. I am very pleased. Highly recommended!


Victorian character

4,2 sur novembre 15, 2012

Quiet & friendly neighbourhood, lovely hostess, Victorian-style furnishings and decor, amazing jazz nights, lotsa steps inside so ask for lower floor if you need to :), good breakfast although a bit tardy both days, great coffee!


A good nine nights

4,0 sur octobre 25, 2012

My wife and I spent nine nights at Debbie's B& B in late September. We had been in Washington for a week and arrived in NY by Amtrak at Penn Station. There was a bit of culture shock for two Western Canadians when we got off the A train at the Nostrand Ave stop. I knew some of the hisory of Bedford Steyvesant from reading up on the area. Debbie's warm welcome quickly made us feel comfortable. We had read previous reviews and one of the selling points in those reviews was the Friday night jazz sessions. That experience was fantastic with great session musicians and the featured vocalist that Friday being Carla Cook, a grammy nominated artist. Expectations would have been a couple hours of being entertained. Reality was an expereince with two sessions that lasted an hour and a half separated by a fish fry and some "Speakeasy" libations. During our stay we met an assortmant of other guests from various corners of the globe. That is one great reason to stay at B&B's. Debbie had a tough week when we were there with a three people close to her passing away.This included her taking a quick trip to Bermuda to attend a funeral. Her close network of friends filled her host role admirably when she was away. Thanks to Davy. Commuting to the other burroughs via subway was easy and cost effective. The weekly pass worked great. From Times Square to the Norstrand stop was around 25 minutes. With Debbie's daily trip to the market, she willcustomize a breakfast for you-- just ask. Enjoy Charlie Clarke, Alberta ,Canada


Our stay at Sankofa Aban....

5 sur octobre 15, 2012

We stayed at Sankofa Aban mid-September 2012 for (sadly) just a one-night layover. What a wonderful period Brownstone Debbie has, and she has made it into a great & comfy B&B! In our case we were taking the opportunity to connect with our son who attends Pratt. This is a GREAT location within walking distance of Pratt and many local businesses & restaurants. We received a warm welcome from Debbie, and were very comfortable in the awesome QUEEN "RED ROOM". Debbie gave us the recommendation to go to "Peaches Hot House" for dinner and our son LOVED the down-home southern cooking and so did we. Thanks so much for a great stay! We intend to return again, hoping for Spring of 2013 or Fall 2013 at the latest!!


Hidden Gem in Brooklyn

5 sur juillet 17, 2012

I now have a new home in Brooklyn! Back in April, I was overjoyed when I learned that I won tickets to Oprah's Lifeclass in New York at Radio City Music Hall. Over the years,I have frequented NYC many times before. This time, I decided that I wanted to live like a local. The Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast exceeded my expectations. Live jazz held on Friday night was enchanting.Jam packed with sounds of true musicianship performed by accomplished local artists playing and singing jazz , blues, gospel and swing. Finger snapping, head bobbing laughter, food and drinks simply flowed.I literally felt as if I was transported back to the Renaissance period. Debbie, the owner is so delightfully charming hostess eager to ensure you have what you need. She tells you to treat her house as your won.You have your own key to your room and front door. You can come and go as you please. Even still, Debbie is very accessible. I don't know what my friend and I would have done without her recommendations. She suggested fabulous underground jazz spots and fine dining restaurants (Thai & French) that only a true native would be privy to. On a cold rainy day, she insisted that I take her shawl to ensure her ill-dressed Texas Sunbelt guest didn't freeze to death. Oh. Did I mention, Debbie held Belly Dances classes at the house too! Breakfast was divine. Each morning presented you with the chance to meet international guests from Australia, Germany and Great Brittan. I cherish each and every conversation. And to think, these connections were made in Brooklyn. I have already shared my experience with friends, family and strangers. Please do NOT pass up an opportunity to stay at this hidden gem in Brooklyn.
